"On the road again" Thanksgiving Adventure

Why worry about the weather during the Thanksgiving break if you are in Southern Utah/Northern Arizona. It is a wonderful time to explore Arches National Park, Hoovenweep National Park, Natural Bridges Monument, Newspaper Rock Petroglyphs, the Four Corners area and the Slot Canyons of Page, Arizona. This adventure was all packed into a four day Thanksgiving holiday. Garth, Katrina & Kystal were the adventures this year of 2011. We ate at a great Italian place in Moab, Utah the first evening and even enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner "Perkins" style, Thanksgiving Day. How could we forget all the hiking and picture taking and rushing around and acting a little crazy we did that vacation. There were so many interesting Indian ruins, arches, river beds and slot canyons to explore. We even traveled to the four Corners area twice,(the first trip it was closed, so back the next day we go) just so Krystal could put hand and feet in the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. It's great to spend time with family. We love it! Spending our Thanksgiving holiday outdoors is a fun tradition Krystal started us on about four years ago. Our theme song through the years has been "On the Road Again, just can't wait to be on the Road Again." We will be on the Road again soon, I am sure!
